Asbestos surveys West Midlands
Crucial Environmental is a team of highly experienced asbestos specialists with offices close to the West Midlands. We have significant expertise working in the area, with clients everywhere from Birmingham and Wolverhampton to Walsall and Coventry – we would love to help you with any of your asbestos needs.
If you are the owner of (or you are responsible for) commercial or industrial property it is a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 that you should have a management plan in place. An asbestos survey is the first step in drawing up this plan. For residential property owners there is no legal need to have a management plan, however, many homeowners wish to have an asbestos survey for the peace of mind.
How our asbestos surveys work
During our surveys we locate any materials that we believe are asbestos or contain asbestos. A sample of each material is collected and then sent away to a UKAS accredited lab for testing as standard. At the lab it is assessed and a certificate of analysis is created and returned to us. This will provide details of the composition and condition of any asbestos found.
The results are usually available within 36 hours – however, we understand that sometimes the results are needed urgently, and we may be able to expedite the process if necessary.
A detailed report
Once we have all the results back, we compile an in-depth report. The analysis will be comprehensive but free from jargon to ensure it is easy to understand as possible. This report will be printed in full colour and presented to you, as well as emailed to you as a PDF.
Asbestos dangers in the West Midlands
There are many areas across the West Midlands that are currently going through a period of renovation and expansion. It should be noted that this can be a time when asbestos is most dangerous. Asbestos is usually only dangerous to human health when the fibres of the material are airborne and can be breathed into the lungs.
Under normal conditions, undisturbed asbestos is not typically dangerous. But if your property is undergoing any kind of renovations, refit or simply an invasive DIY project, it is important to get an asbestos survey carried out. Get in contact with Crucial Environmental today for more details.
